Tragedy on the Promenade des Anglais

Tonight terror struck again in a favorite spot of locals, tourists, and artists alike–the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France.  May the families of those killed and injured find comfort somehow in the days ahead.  In memory of those who lost their lives, may we find the ways to (re)make a world in which our promenades, and our cities and towns, are again evocative instead of joyous and beautiful scenes, as artist Raoul Dufy, for instance, depicted…and welcoming and safe for all people to enjoy.
